Avocado Pizza with Bacon, Cilantro and Lime
A traditional pizza dough is dressed up with fresh avocado, crispy bacon, a squeeze of lime juice and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro. The perfect flavor combo!
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 batch of Jim Lahey's Overnight Pizza Dough (see notes)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Italian blend cheese
- 4 pieces cooked bacon, chopped
- 1/2 of a large avocado, sliced
- Juice of 1/2 a lime
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Prepare pizza dough according to recipe directions and roll out onto a large pizza or baking sheet dusted with cornmeal (or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.)
Preheat oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit.
Brush olive oil evenly over pizza dough and sprinkle on minced garlic and cheese. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, until the crust is lightly golden and the cheese has melted.
Remove pizza from oven and let cool slightly (5 minutes or so) before adding the other toppings. Sprinkle the chopped bacon evenly over the pizza, followed by the avocado. Squeeze on the lime juice and finish with the chopped cilantro.
Slice pizza into wedges and serve immediately.
